  1. Hello,
    I have been ripping old dvd-r's into mp4 format. On the disc, they play perfectly in sync.
    The resulting files are all slightly out of audio/video sync.
    This has happened with 5 or 6 different ripping/conversion programs and 2 different computers and disc players as well. Tried all sorts of combos.
    Best solution has been Avidemux at -250 setting. It gets the problem perfectly fixed.
    The only issue is I have hundreds of videos and I can't seem to figure out the scripting for batch conversion on Avidemux.

    1: Can anyone give me an actual script that would work on avidemux for batch processing mp4 files just re-syncing the audio at -250?
    2: Or any other program that can do the same simple task in a batch? I don't mind paying to buy any program if it will work like Avidemux.
    Nothing else needs to be changed or re-converted on the files.
    Each audio sync (even for a large file) only take 3 or 4 minutes with Avidemux.

    I'm just really looking for any program that can do a small shift in audio to match with the video without full re-conversion.
    Since Avidemux works perfectly, that might be best if I can figure out the scripting as a novice

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I wrote this batch file for an elderly friend.
    Put it, a test video and ffmpeg.exe in the same folder.
    Run the batch file. It's pretty fast.

    @echo off
    if not exist NEW\*.* md NEW
    echo  Output will be in the \NEW folder.
    echo  Enter the figure in "seconds.milliseconds"
    echo  with a plus or minus sign in front.
    echo  The change can be negative or positive.
    echo  e.g.
    echo  -0.500  -^> half a second
    echo  -0.250  -^> a quarter of a second
    echo  +0.280  -^> two hundred and eighty milliseconds
    echo  +1.500  -^> one and a half seconds
    echo  If the audio is playing too late use negative.
    echo  If the audio is playing too soon use positive.
    set /p offset=Enter the change:
    for %%a in ("*.avi") do ffmpeg.exe -i "%%a" -itsoffset %offset% -i "%%a" -vcodec copy -acodec copy -map 0:0 -map 1:1  -y "NEW\%%a"
    for %%a in ("*.mp4") do ffmpeg.exe -i "%%a" -itsoffset %offset% -i "%%a" -vcodec copy -acodec copy -map 0:0 -map 1:1  -y "NEW\%%a"
